Sean Rowley‘s pop club phenomenon ‘Guilty Pleasures’ is to transfer to TV next month.

The concept which started off as a radio show before becoming a regular hit at clubs and festivals is to be screened on ITV on March 8 – with several guest artists performing their very own guilty pleasures.

Amongst the musicians set to appear on the show hosted by Fearne Cotton are Supergrass‘ Danny and Gaz performing Michael Jackson’s Beat It and singer KT Tunstall performing John Farnham’s ‘The Voice’.

Other artists set to appear on the show are The Feeling doing The Buggles’ ‘Video Killed The Radio Show’, Kelly Osbourne doing Bonnie Tyler’s ‘Total Eclipse Of The Heart’ and The Magic Numbers performing Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton’s ‘Islands In The Stream’.

Rowley says: “Guilty Pleasures is a modern day success story, which has, in four incredible years, entered the lexicon of everyday banter. The music played at Guilty Pleasures won’t ever make the rock critics top ten’s but we play it free of irony and celebrate pop music in all it’s glorious forms”.
